let’s keep it simple!

re-post from my old writings

Kenapa kita jatuh cinta dengan seseorang dan kenapa orang lain mencintai kita, menganggap kita adalah pilihannya yang terbaik? Pernahkah terpikir bahwa ada kemungkinan dia atau kita jatuh cinta karena alasan-alasan sederhana yang dia atau kita lakukan? Alasan-alasan sederhana yang akan membuat kita tersenyum-senyum sendiri saat mendengarnya.. atau membuatnya tersenyum saat kita mengatakannya?

Seperti yang diucapkan oleh Harry Burns pada Sally Albright, di dalam film fenomenal, When Harry Met Sally, berikut ini:

I love that you get cold when it’s 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you’re looking at me like I’m nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it’s not because I’m lonely, and it’s not because it’s New Year’s Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.

Dan ketika kita memilih untuk menjalani sepanjang sisa hidup bersama seseorang, sebenarnya kita hanya membutuhkan sebuah janji yang sederhana, untuk hal-hal yang sederhana saja. Tak perlu janji-janji muluk, tapi janji sederhana seperti yang dibilang Adam Sandler di filmnya, The Wedding Singer, berikut:

I wanna make you smile WHEN YOU GET SAD
Carry you around when your arthritis is bad
All I wanna do is grow old with you.
I’ll get you medicine when your tummy aches
build you a fire if the furnace breaks
Oh it could be so nice, growin old with you.
I’ll miss you, kiss you, give you my coat when you are cold.
Need you, feed you, I’ll even let you hold the remote control.
So let me do the dishes in OUR kitchen sink
Put you to bed when you’ve had too much to drink.
Oh I could be the man THAT GROWS OLD old with you.
I wanna grow old with you.

Sebenarnya cinta adalah hal yang sederhana. Karena penikmat-penikmatnyalah, cinta terasa complicated and terrifying.

So, let’s keep it simplebecause I think, it’s more beautiful that way… :D

Aku dan Perempuan Ini

She always stays at this side of the road.
Sits in the coffee shop’s chair and watches the sky turns from light to dark.
Drinks her glasses of lemonade and reads some headlines in the newspapers.

She always waits there, in this side of the road.
Sits in the same chair, every single day.
Watches the same sky, every stupid minute.
Keeps on drinking the same lemonade, from the same glass, over and over again.

She’s always there.
Stands still.
Waits for a beautiful moment; where he passes by and says, “Hi… Is this chair taken?”

…and she says, “Nope… never… it’s yours..” Continue reading
